It’s difficult to build a well-working off-road ride these days without doing a little welding. The term “bolt-on” just doesn’t work for everything, and sometimes you need a small (or big) job welded together to accomplish your goals. Unfortunately not all of us have access to a welder, nor room to house a welding station. Miller has you covered on both fronts.
The portable F-Series ArcStation welding table gives you a steel work top to weld on that you can collapse and put in the corner of your garage when not in use, making “limited workspace” no longer a valid excuse.
But to use a portable welding table, you’ll need a welder that can suit a guy who’s never had room to learn to weld before. Miller’s new Millermatic 211 Auto-Set with MVP allows success for the most skilled to even the most novice of MIG welders. It plugs in to either a 120-volt or 230-volt socket meaning you can use it almost anywhere, and with the Auto-Set feature, even the most novice welder can start practicing after setting the thickness of the material being worked on. For about $1,200, Miller allows the average enthusiast to start with a good quality welder that will still suit their needs no matter how good they become at laying beads.
01. The Millermatic 211 can weld mild steel or aluminum (with the optional spoolgun). It can spit out solid steel or stainless wire between 0.023 and 0.035 inches, or flux cored wire between 0.030 and 0.045 inches.
It MIG welds with an amperage range between 30 and 210 amps.
